In episode 31 of the podcast, we focus on two films from the massive filmography of director Michael Winner.  Winner's most famous films are probably the Death Wish series which starred Charles Bronson.  We look at two, more obscure movies, 1977's The Sentinel and 1984's Scream for Help. The Sentinel has a huge cast of top-notch talent, with the lead roles held by Chris Sarandon and Cristina Raines
It tells the story of woman with a mysterious past who finds herself
guided by unseen forces down a dark path in 1970's New York City.  The
film is full of surprises, shocks, and squirmy moments galore. With a
significant budget and a script based on a successful novel, it works on
many levels and has an ending that is almost certain to spur
conversation. Scream for Help is one of the most breathlessly
paced films we've ever seen.  It starts with a bang and really doesn't
let up until the final credits are rolling.  It is a story of a 17 year
old girl played by Rachael Kelly
that is confident her step-father is trying to kill her mother. It is
of equal measure goofy and grim, light-hearted and brutally frank, silly
and deadly serious.  The acting is decidely sub-par and the script ( by
the occasionally brilliant Tom Holland
) rings true on occasion, but is far to hit and miss to really be
considered "good".  Despite all these issues, the film is impossible to
look away from and is almost guaranteed to entertain you. If you have
the option, go for the uncut version which features a surprising amount
of nudity and sex on screen, and, if you're checking the fuses, watch
out for a puddle on the floor. Let us know what you thought of the podcast by writing to us at flickersfrom@yahoo.com or flickersfrom@gmail.com or you could always leave a message over on our Facebook page.
